Introductory Videos

 

As I retool my online British Literature I survey, I’m trying to make some prefatory videos to set students up for success, little tutorials that mirror what I give students in my brick-and-mortar classes before they jump into the semester’s assignments. They range from a spiritual perspective on the course to┬ásome how-to guides to an intro to an entire literary period.
